A Family sees the Worth of a Kettering Education

A lot has changed at Kettering University since Wayne Walworth graduated in 1955, but one thing has remained constant: the high quality of education. This is why the Mechanical Engineer alumnus recommends the University to anyone who asks and has six family members who followed in his footsteps to attend Kettering.
